An easily applied risk score for contrast-induced nephropathy after PCI allowed practical, simple assessments compared with other published scores, according to recent study findings.
To develop a simple risk score for developing contrast-induced nephropathy (CIN) after PCI (defined as an increase ≥25% and/or ≥0.5 mg/dL in serum creatinine at 48 hours after PCI vs. baseline), researchers enrolled consecutive patients treated with elective or urgent PCI at a cardiac cath lab (derivation cohort, n=488; validation cohort, n=200) from September 2008 to January 2010.
